How did November come so quickly? It seems like our students just left for campus yesterday and now they are headed home for the Thanksgiving holiday. This issue of Staying in Touch has information about our spring break volunteer program in New Orleans. We hope you will share this with your college-age students as they begin to make their plans for the spring. Happy Thanksgiving!.
